Be Warned - You Can Die From An Overdose Of Ugliness!

"John Norton, who was married to former Ulster Secretary Mo Mowlam, has died at the age of 53.

Founder of the Left-wing think-tank Demos, Mr Norton also set up the Thousand Club to raise money for Labour.

He was left deeply saddened by the death of Ms Mowlam in 2005 and is said to have also become disillusioned with New Labour.

He came back into the public eye the year after Ms Mowlam's death when it emerged that he was having a relationship with Clare Short, the former Overseas Aid Secretary."

So there you are, 53 is no age, he had plenty of money, there's no report of "bravely borne" or "after a long battle with cancer" - he obviously died from an overdose of UGLINESS.

I'm no authority on the subject but he doesn't look that fucking ugly to me.

I have a feeling that Penguin is referring to the women!

Although I'm normally a big fan of your forthright comments, Penguin, I think that was an unneccessary jibe in the case of Mo Mowlem. Apart from the fact she suffered from terminal cancer she was generally accepted as being one of the more honest Labour politicians.

Anon. maybe you would have, but I wouldn't have touched her with yours.
Talking of ugly Mr. Penguin have you seen what the cookery teachers been raking in, lot's of dough.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

Good riddance, when will Prescott die of the same thing ?

She may have been as you say "one of the more honest Labour politicians" but she was still a pig scarer. And she should have shouted blue murder when Bliar shafted her in favour of Voldemort, instead she went quietly and let the evil machine keep rolling along.

Looks as if his taste or eyesight hasn't improved. Perhaps a visit yo Specsavers would have helped.

Left-wing think-tank

Contradiction in terms, surely.

Good drills to him though - we used to have 'hog hunting' nights at University. He would have won hands down.
